The significance of what occurred in Germany during our period of study needs no exaggeration. They say history repeats itself but we must hope that this period provides lessons which the world does not forget. Welcome to our series for Cambridge International Examinations IGCSE History (0470/43) Paper 4 (Alternative to coursework) Depth Study A: Germany, 1918-1945. In the series we cover all the main themes including the establishment of the Weimar Republic, the problems faced by the Weimar Republic from 1919-1923, its recovery from those problems and finally, the Third Reich.
GCSE and A Level History Audio Study Guides
There is something very special and important about History. It is a subject which is both dear to our hearts and very relevant in today's world. It is also a subject which lends itself to the wonderful medium of audio. In fact it was our History teacher who was our inspiration. Every class he gave was a joy to attend. It was in his image that we created Audiopi and our mission is also to make every tutorial we create a joy to listen to and learn from.
We have been very fortunate to have the support and hard work of an amazing group of history academics and teachers. Our content is entirely original and our combination of writers ensures that the relevant specifications are fully addressed and that our listeners benefit from the very latest academic thinking. We do not regurgitate text books in audio! Each series comprises between 15-30 tutorials with an average length of 10 minutes. This makes what we do easy to access and not too overwhelming for our listeners!
Our series are designed to support the work of teachers in the classroom and give students very easy access to independent study. Many of our teachers have their students listen to our tutorials in preparation for class and we have structured each series to be reflective of lesson plans.
It is our job to ensure that students get a thorough insight into everything their course requires. It is also to give them the passion to explore for themselves.
Even though the USA had entered WW1 and had subsequently involved itself in the affairs of post war Europe, American influence across the world really started to be felt for the first time during our period of study. The 'roaring twenties' conjure up images of wealth, parties, music, gangsters, cars and an emerging Hollywood. The cultural influence of the US was starting to spread. They say that if America sneezes the rest of the world catches a cold. No kidding! The 1930's Wall Street crash and subsequent depression reverberated around the world and still does. Our series has been written by Briton, Dr David Perkins, and American historian, Jakub Gaweda.
On 16 May 2002, an old man died in his bed in Hobart. Alec Campbell had lived to 103 years of age. Born in 1899, before Australia had become an independent nation – Alec lived right through the twentieth century. During Alec’s life, Australia changed greatly. He lived through Two World Wars; the Great Depression; the Cold War; the beginning and the end of what was known as the White Australia policy and Australia’s shift from being a loyal outpost of Great Britain – to a modern multicultural nation, increasingly focussed on its position in the Asia-Pacific region. As we’ll see in this podcast series, the Australia in which Alec grew up and went to school, was very different to the Australia he finally left behind when he died in the twenty first century. Welcome to our series for Year 10 students on the Modern World and Australia. We are proud to be able to bring you the combined intellectual might of Professor Keir Reeves, Dr Ben Mountford, Dr Jolanta Nowak, Kat Avery and David McGinniss of the Federation University and the Collaborative Research Centre for Australian History, to help you in your studies.
